3 stars Well this album is absolutely underrated and often unknown as well. It deserves another half star at least,as it's an unplugged tasteful album with a Medieval mood, but also with symphonic breaks through, absolutely inspiring. Besides this is another hidden gem, which seems perfect to be performed in a theater (along with "Contrappunti")... even though for instance another fine album such as "Contrappunti", unlike this "Florian", is closer to some albums by ELP and completely different in comparison to it. But anyway both albums represent something strange and not complying with their standard, except on the commercial (a few ones) pop songs of that èpoque, above all within the present "Florian", but it never minds.In fact for example another underrated work, "Di Terra" by "BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO", was totally out of contest,especially by regarding of their usual was an imprinting by Di Giacomo & company, and some critics considered this issue as a failed attempt to innovate their style: actually the real state of things was different and this is the same destiny which coupled BANCO to Le ORME.At the end I'm not surprised about such change of direction!! Recommended!
